LOL! I was just guessing, Jerry. I've been around Van enough over the years to know that he's a man of few words.

I'm also guessing that it was pretty cool to be there when it happened. Even if he didn't express a lot in words or emotion, I'm sure there was a lot going on under the surface, as evidenced by his hanging around The One and going over it with Paul. I'm sure he wasn't just being cordial.

Well done, everybody!

Wow!! What a special moment.

Thanks for sharing it with those of us who can't be there.

I picked a fine time to get a new job!

If not now, certainly later. The national tour includes some time in Oregon at The Mothership.
